Johnathan Hankins is the name of a very big football player who is on his way to the Dallas Cowboys. Johnathan Hankins plays for the Cowboys.
On Tuesday, the team reached an agreement with the Las Vegas Raiders to trade a defensive lineman who is 6 feet 3 inches tall and 340 pounds to the North Texas Mean Green in return for draft compensation.
Hankins Will Once Again Be a Member of An NFC East Squad
Hankins will be playing for a team in the NFC East once again. He started his career in the NFL as a second-round choice for the New York Giants in 2013. At that time, he was a member of the run-stopping combo that also featured Damon “Snacks” Harrison.
After that, Hankins went on to sign a three-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts worth a total of $30 million during the free agency frenzy that took place in 2017.
However, his time with the Colts was cut short when he has released the following offseason and went on to sign with the Raiders, where he has played ever since.
The 30-year-old veteran started 30 games for the Raiders throughout the last two seasons, bringing his total number of career starts to 117. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn will rely heavily on the veteran’s expertise to assist in the refinement of the Cowboys’ run defense.
In contrast to rookie fifth-round pick John Ridgeway, who the Cowboys hoped would eventually contribute to that role but who was eventually waived and claimed by the Washington Commanders, Hankins has repeatedly shown that he is an impact player. Ridgeway was eventually claimed by the Washington Commanders.
Even Better, He Won’t Be Asked to Be The Middle Marquis
Even better is the fact that he won’t be asked to be the marquis guy in the middle like he was once asked to be, but instead he will join a rotation of capable interior defensive line talents such as Quinton Bohanna, Chauncey Golston, Osa Odighizuwa, Neville Gallimore, Trysten Hill, and Carlos Watkins.
It is anticipated that the Cowboys will try to get Hankins back into game shape as quickly as possible before returning to practice on Wednesday to get ready to play the Bears, a team that rushed for nearly 250 yards in their blowout victory over the New England Patriots on Monday evening.
It is also anticipated that the Cowboys will strive to allow Hankins to contribute (or multiple contributions) in containing Justin Fields and a backfield that boasts both David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert.
This is something that can be expected from the Cowboys. The next scheduled session will begin on
When it comes to personnel, Quinn has more options than he knows what to do with, which presents him with the difficult challenge of figuring out how to organize his defensive line rotation in a way that gives every impact player the opportunity to be rewarded with playing time.
Quinn is a victim of his success. This was seen during the previous week when Watkins was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad.
After that, the coaching staff had to choose between Hill and Gallimore to choose who would play against the Detroit Lions on gameday. Watkins was given a role in the game as a reward.
You can now include Hankins in the equation that you were working on.
